NHL Eastern Conference Final Update: Lightning Strike Early To Get Even

May 21, 2016

The Tampa Bay Lightning built a (4-0) lead after two periods, and held on for a (4-3) home victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins in game 4 of their NHL semi-final series.

That series, as I predicted is now tied at two games apiece, (Whatever Bettman Wants Bettman Gets and all that), with game 5 in Pittsburgh on Sunday night.

I am not ready to predict a 7 game series here but not only the Bettman wants factor but history, at least Lightning semi-finals history, favors it.

The previous 3 Lightning semis went the full 7 games, however, only one of the previous 8 Penguins’ semi-finals have gone that long.

The Lightning snapped a 3 game home semi-final losing streak with last night’s victory.
